You spent weeks practicing and your thumbs are aching and calloused from logging all those hours on your NES. A gallery of great fighter lay defeated in your wake. Piston Honda, King Hippo, Mr. Sandman — none of them could stand up to Little Mac. Now you have to defeat the champ, Iron Mike Tyson. Can your thumbs handle taking on this challenge or will you cast your controller down in shame after defeat?
The above work by Brendan Corris captures the drama and intensity of the title bout. My adrenaline gets pumping just looking at it.
